F2PMeter: Is Summoner’s Legion Truly Free to Play?
It’s time for another episode of our F2Pmeter series, where we test the free-to-play-ness of all your favourite games. After Heroes and Generals’ F2PMeter, now it's turn for another title to face our test: Summoner's Legion, from R2Games, a browser-based TCG game where you can build your deck and face PvE campaign or PvP matches.
Remember that games start with a 100% of free-to-play-ness, and that % will vary depending on the answers to the questions.
Yes (optional) – -15%. It’s playable for free, but it’s possible to get a VIP status with real money to receive certain advantages and boosts. There are different VIP packs (1 month, 3 months and 6 months) and when a subscription remains active, players get progress points and more rewards. In addition, VIP members get the chance to refresh mercenaries, buy more stamina and have more deck pages.
No (but...) – -5%. The available premium options that a player can buy with real money could be probably considered more of a timesaver rather than an actual direct advantage as there are no specific powerful cards or items purchasable with premium currency and restricted to paying users.
Yes – +10%. Surely VIP cards and rewards, more stamina and the possibility to buy a potentially unlimited amount of booster pack with real money will make your life easier, but the game doesn't seems to put you against an insuperable paywall that force you to open your wallet in order to enjoy the whole experience, and it seems to be absolutely playable without having to spend a dime.
Summoner’s Legion scores a 75% of free-to-play-ness in our test.
